Nine New Reasons to Celebrate for Snap-on!

Nine New Reasons to Celebrate for Snap-on!

New starter Tim Ismet

Snap-on Tools, the world-famous man-in-a-van franchise, has welcomed a wealth of new talent into its network. As seven new franchisees hit the road and two existing business owners expand into second territories, both they, and Snap-on, have much to celebrate!

Tim Ismet, who has just launched his franchise in Enfield, says:

“I’m over the moon to have joined Snap-on.  It’s one of the most recognisable brands in the world, and as former workshop technician, I can really vouch for the fact that they’re the best tools in the business. I’ve always been quite entrepreneurially minded, so when the territory near me became available, I jumped at the chance.”

As Snap-on approach their 100th year anniversary – the renowned tool brand first launched in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 2020 – more budding entrepreneurs than ever before are looking to invest in a franchise of their own. The UK network is now comprised of over 430 franchisees, all delivering outstanding customer service to technicians up and down the country.

Tim adds:

“I’d always been impressed by how helpful the local Snap-on man was, back when I was working in the workshops. I’m a real people person, so spending time chatting with regular customers really appealed to me. Plus, I wanted to build a better future for my wife and kids. I did consider opening my own garage for a little while, but nothing could contend with the support you get as a Snap-on franchisee. It just made sense. To have unlimited support at the end of the phone is so beneficial to my business and has set me up really well."

Before working as a technician, Tim was a Main Dealer Parts Manager, looking after the operations of a small team at garages around Greater London. His combined experience has offered him a great start as a franchisee, but experience of the motor trade isn’t necessary.  Thanks to an award-winning training and support programme, prospects from a variety of backgrounds are maximising their potential by launching a Snap-on franchise.

Lisa Law, National Franchise Manager at Snap-on Tools, says:

“We’re proud of our diverse network and the variety of skills they bring to the franchise.  Although most come to us with some knowledge of the brand, it’s not a prerequisite for success. We’re looking for determined and pro-active people, with a dream to secure a better future for themselves. Some of our most successful franchisees have never stepped foot in a garage, much less worked in one.

“When ambitious, hardworking people, like Tim, approach us with a dream to do more for themselves and their family, we do all that we can to make that dream a reality. That’s why we launched our £12k jump-start offer, where we pay half of your start up costs. Our number one aim is to get you out there, running your business and in control of your own future, because we know that’s how everyone becomes successful and profitable. The future holds more growth for us all – our new recruits and those who have been with us for decades. We’re heading towards our 100th year in business – it’s an exciting time to be part of Snap-on. I think people can see that!”
